Hey jimmy, does that apply to Parliamentary systems too. What country in the world is a democracy by the definition you are using?

Other than ancient Greece for short periods of course. And even then, definition of citizen was very questionable.

The Constitution is an anti-democratic doctrine by design. I do not care about what other countries are on some list nor do I care about some arbitrary list of country's ranking regarding their democratic ranking.

Because you are an island and agree with Trump's isolationist policies. Fair enough.

Wrong, but fair enough.

I am pretty certain that Trump was not around in 1787 to have a hand in writing the Constitution, and that a governing document whose core foundation is federalism has any relevance to isolationist policies of islands.

A literalist to the end. Are you really pretending you didn't get my literary reference?
